Designing High-Performing Teams: Leadership for the future
Increased complexity and rapid technological change require organisations to collaborate better. To succeed today we need to make faster and better decisions, increase autonomy and distribute leadership across the organisation. The networked organisation is one of this century’s mega-trends and self-organising, semi-autonomous teams driven by a strong purpose underpin these organisations and are crucial to their success.
In this fast-paced workshop we will look into how we can collaborate better by utilising ideas and practices from Holacracy, Sociocracy, servant leadership and team self-selection.
What you’ll learn/topics
Teams, the foundation of the networked organisation
Holacracy’s hierarchy of purpose not people
Designing great teams through self-selection
The structure of high-performance teams: Roles over job descriptions and titles
Decision making by consent
